The Hypocrisy of Ant-Trumpsters

I awe this video on Facebook the other night, and as usual, I have an opinion on it. I figured it would make an interesting blog post, and if nothing else, get out some of my irritation with people.

Donald Trump's long history of mocking people's appearances

Whether it’s his own daughter people he’s seen on TV, or just people he doesn’t like, the blithely self-unaware candidate is very, very aware of other people’s appearances

See, the thing that cracks me up about things like this, when attacking Trump, is the hypocrisy. Most people who are anti-Trump, at least from what I've seen of them, are exactly the same as him. They judge people quickly, they bash those they don't like, and they are bluntly honest, even if it hurts.

I'm not taking sides either way, simply saying it's interesting - apparently, if you're running for a political office, you can't act they way the rest of the 99% of the modern world acts, whether they admit it or not.

Most people say they'd prefer a candidate who is bluntly honest, even if people don't like it. They'd prefer someone who doesn't blow smoke, lie to people and dance around with typical politician bull shit.

Sorry folks, but Trump is what you get from that - it doesn't mean you're gonna like it, cuz bluntly honest people tend to be stamped with the label of "mean" or politically incorrect. He is honest, and he says things in public that I see and hear people see all the flipping time.

Most claim they could do great things as president, and we just need a "normal" person in office, flaws and all. Those same people act the way Trump does when they're with their friends, and think they are awesome for being "honest" and not bull shitting. Guess what - he acts like that in public, honest and brash, and he is running for president. He's exactly what people have been asking for, and now that he's running, people don't like it.

Like I said, not taking sides on him as a candidate either way, I just get annoyed at people's hypocrisy. I see nasty comments by people who judge this guy for doing the same thing. Just odd.

Books/Reading & Coffee

Ok, I must write a post about this, because I really feel like I'm missing out on something here.

You know how books & coffee are a "thing" now? Like, they go together. If you read books, you apparently must drink coffee. There are sooooo many pics & memes & quotes & phrases talk about "books & coffee" being perfect.

Well, I don't like coffee!!

Every time I see one of these memes, or a gif with the inevitable caption about the harmony between coffee and reading, it just makes me depressed. I want to be like "oh yeah, that's me, I love books..." but then it's like "...but I hate coffee. Shoot, I'm a looser. Maybe I should start drinking coffee..."

Seriously, everyone seems to like coffee, in the book world. I hear sooooo many authors talk about taking a break with a cup of coffee, and writing or reading a book. Readers are the same way - coffee and a good book. It's like a special club I can't get into, because my tongue will fall off.

Me and my tea or juice (or more often than not, water) will just have to sit on the sidelines, wishing we were cool enough to be in the "coffee club" with the kool kids. Coffee is the shit, and I'm incapable of swallowing it, without a major gag-fest.

Book people like coffee. Writers, authors, & readers alike. *sigh*

Either that, or wine.

Feb 29th Weirdness

I'm having a bit of an odd day today. Maybe it's because it's Friday the 29th, and this day only happens once every four years. I dunno.

A lot of people are superstitious about this particular day. Some believe it's bad luck to be born on this day, others believe it's magical if a loved one dies on this day. Some cultures have a tradition where a guy can't say "no" if his girl proposes to him today, and if he does, he has to pay for the dress (or whatever the bride-to-be decides she wants him to pay for, when she does end up marrying). In the same category, a lot of people believe it's bad luck to get married or divorced in a leap year.

All that being said, today, and this year, seem to be odd. Out of the norm, and important, somehow.

Maybe that's why I feel odd? I feel a spiritual tugging deep down, and I can't figure out why. I feel like something's about to change, or something is going to happen, or something is coming. Just...something.

I feel nervous, but I feel like I don't need to be. Like whatever this is, will be good. I dunno.

I just feel...weird. Kinda like I'm about to explode, in a good way. I just have to find the button, cuz I think once I press it, I'll blow. I just don't know how to find the damn thing. Like having a word on the tip of your tongue, and you're just like "come on brain, spit it out!!" Kinda feeling like that inside at the moment. Come on spirit, figure this shit out!

Could just be hormones too, who knows. Weird day.

Desi Pere

(Swirling Secrets, #1)

 Desi Pere
~Releasing: February 1st, 2016

~Genres: Young Adult, Paranormal

Magnhild, is a freak. From her name, right down to the naturally bizarre visage she can't seem to get rid of- she's an odd duck. 

Her life has taken a swirling plunge into the drain the past few months, but it's nothing compared to what's coming. All she wants is to finish school, and start over somewhere fun. Fate, has other plans. 

Enter the Desi Pere underground organization, and three of it's loyal members: They've enlisted Magnhild's cooperation, whether she likes it or not. They mean to exploit her superhuman gifts, ones she didn't think anyone knew about. Overnight, she's dragged into a world, and a war, the normal world doesn't even know exist. The bait: reuniting her with her mother, who's supposed to be dead. 

Danger, confusion, deception, and self-loathing fog each decision Magnhild faces. She desperately hopes to find her mother, and bring meaning to her past of abuse and isolation. 

Will she see through the web society has spun around her, or fall captive to century-old lies? In her search for the truth, she discovers she cannot find what she seeks, without first becoming herself, accepting her inner strength, and embracing her bizarre life...
